There are never the right words to take away the pain, but praying our Lord gives you comfort and peace to always remember the amazing memories you had with Dede. The video was beautiful, and only captured a slight portion of the wonderful life he had. Hold onto those memories and find peace in knowing he is with Him. We love you.
